Happy Flutter By Wednesday!!

Happy Wednesday to you! So much has happened in the last week!! I've got tons of things to show you and tell you so be sure to check back. First off, I have to tell you that hubby bought be a new computer while I was at seminar over the weekend - YIPPEEE!!! But boy is it some work - and it seems to take me forever to get it done. Little things annoy me - I mean I'm so used to being able to upload one photo at a time on my old computer but can't for the life of me figure it out on the new. Sure, I tried it at midnight and by 1AM I decided to quit - I probably wasn't in full brain mode - but still!! So bear with me, I guess, is what I'm trying to say....I promise I'll get back to posting regularly and leaving comments on all those wonderful blogs of yours!

So seminar was great - will TOTALLY go into that in another post. I've got a pile of stuff that I need to take photos of and share so be looking for those in the next day or two.

For today though, I need to share my Flutter By card and boy is it an AWESOME one...okay nothing like tooting my own horn but I think you'll agree. The challenge this week was an open one - which means anything goes just have to include a butterfly or fairy on your creation. We have a guest designer this week, it's the fabulous Carolyn Bounds. Be sure to check out her creation, along with Danni's on Danni's blog.

So for my card I used the yummy new Basic Grey Lemonade paper and a brand new set from The Angel Company. This set is from the very talented and oh so nice, Mabelle who I got to meet at seminar. The set is called Fairy Birthday and is available TODAY in our new catalog!!! I used Mojo Monday Sketch week 93 for the layout - switching it just a little to fit my image.

CA-UTE, huh??? I just ADORE this set!!! I used Prismacolor Pencils and OMS on the fairy along with Copics for her skin & cheeks. The butterfly and sentiment are part of the stamp set as well - COOL, right? I decided to use liquid applique on the cupcake and crystal stickles on the wings. Below is a better picture of them.

I think I love this card so much cause of the gorgeous stamp set and the delicious paper!! It's a win - win.

Be sure to visit the other team members blogs to see their fab-u-oso designs. You can find the links to their blogs on the right hand side. And while you are at it leave me some love and let me know what you think - I so enjoy reading your comments!!

Thanks for stopping by and I promise to be a better blogger so be sure to come back :o)
